Federal and State law requires employers to report newly hired and re-hired employees in Kansas to the New Hire Directory within 20 days of the hire. The Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL) has launched a new website to provide employers with detailed information about reporting new hires, including how to report online.
The new website, at http://www.dol.ks.gov/UI/newhires_BUS.aspx, includes information about the law and when and how to report every business’ new employee in Kansas. The website provides the required information about who must report, how it should be reported and how to get additional assistance when reporting.
New hire reporting allows states to reduce unemployment benefit and worker’s compensation overpayments and fraud.
